. 5 min read

In the world of social media, having a large number of followers can seem like a status symbol. It's tempting to boost your follower count quickly, especially if you want to appear more influential or attract potential collaborations. However, before diving into how to increase fake followers, let's take a moment to understand why this might not be the best strategy.

Circleboom doesn't recommend any interaction with fake and spam accounts on Twitter / X! They can bloat up your follower number for a while and then suddenly abandon you! Yes, this can happen! If you want to learn more, you should check this real-life case of suddenly having zero followers! ⬇️
Why do I suddenly have 0 followers on Twitter?
Let’s explore the possible reasons behind this sudden drop and discuss how to address and prevent it.

Why you should avoid fake followers!

Fake followers are accounts that don't engage with your content. They might be bots or inactive accounts, and having them can hurt your credibility. Real followers want to see genuine engagement, and fake followers can lower your overall engagement rate. Plus, Twitter can penalize accounts that buy or acquire fake followers.

There are lots of inactive users on Twitter. They hurt your online reputation! So, why don’t you find and remove inactive Twitter accounts?

Understanding fake followers

Fake followers are different from real followers in that they don't interact with your tweets. They often have generic profiles, few tweets, and many accounts but have few followers themselves. Identifying these characteristics is key if you're set on increasing your follower count artificially.

Finding fake followers

One method to get fake followers is to find and follow other people's fake followers. These followers are likely to follow back because they're set up to do so. However, manually finding fake followers can be incredibly time-consuming and tedious.

With Circleboom Twitter's Account Search, you can easily find fake or bot accounts to follow. Circleboom’s advanced algorithms and filters help you quickly identify these accounts, saving you time and effort.

Here's a step-by-step explanation of how to find somebody's fake followers with the Circleboom Twitter Tool:

Step #1: Log in to Circleboom Twitter.

If you don't have a Circleboom account yet, let's get yours instantly!

If this is your first time and you haven't connected your Twitter account to Circleboom yet, it will take only a few seconds to do so.

Step #2: You are on the dashboard! Navigate to the left and find "Account Search".

Step #3: Enter the username of the account whose followers you want to see and click on "Display Followers." Let's use @elonmusk as an example.

Step #4: Circleboom Twitter will quickly display the followers as a list. Now, we enter the "Filter Options" located on the side of the screen.

Step #5: Here, there are many filtering options available. For now, since we only want to see Fake/Spam accounts, we click on "Show Only."

Step #6: Now, only Fake Followers are displayed in the list. From here, you can select the accounts and easily unfollow them.

Many fake followers will follow you back automatically.

The consequences of having fake followers

While it might be tempting to increase your follower count quickly, remember the drawbacks. Fake followers can reduce your engagement rate, damage your reputation, and even lead to penalties from Twitter. It’s essential to weigh these consequences against the temporary boost in numbers.
